Impressions taken from this plate  (5)


This plate was begun in pure etching, and just one small area of drypoint shading was added in the second state.


There was a small print-run of Flower Market, Brussels. The first proof, mostly in etching, was printed in black ink on ivory laid paper (Graphic with a link to impression #K3590102), as were subsequent impressions (Graphic with a link to impression #K3590103, Graphic with a link to impression #K3590104). They are all trimmed to the platemark and signed on a tab with Whistler's butterfly and 'imp.' to show that he printed them.
